It's that time of the year again, women and children!
I've just sent out invites (if you didn't get one due to an email address SNAFU, let me know and I can PM you the details) to every player we had last year for our $30 pay league, and if there is enough interest and the league is full with many more interested, I would definitely run a second league if need be. But let's concentrate on the first league... first. The cost and payouts will be the same. $30 entry fee, winner gets $330, 2nd place gets their money back. The rest of us/you suck eggs for a few months.
I've set up the usual, a 12 team live draft, standard = snaking order, happening during the last week of August, anywhere around 8/26, 8/26 or 8/27. It definitely won't be on the weekend or on a Friday night. The exact draft date and time will be TBD by the owners involved. Tentatively I put down 7PM Pacific / 10PM Eastern on Thursday, August 27th.
The time and date for the draft is up for debate, hell, even the KIND of draft, along with any other suggestions are all open for discussion - scoring settings, etc., can all be discussed here - or we can just roll with last year's settings. (as they currently are in the Yahoo league page)
Last year's Championship game had Bobert take me down in the championship game, unfortunately. For the second year in a row I landed second place! Bobert joins the Champion's Club, where he presides along with TickleMeElmo who won it in 2013, Aphxtwinin who won it in 2012, and 2011's Champion, Playadelwes. Who will join that exclusive club this year? Is it YOU?
Without further adieu, let's get to brass tacks here. Who is in?

If someone from last year can't play this year, no worries, as I'm sure we'll be able to find someone else to take your spot. For this reason, if a non-2014 player has interest in playing this year, let me know and you'll be added to the waiting list in the order in which your request was posted.
Once the league is full, I'll send out payment instructions. It'll be the typical Paypal deal. Once everyone has paid, we'll set the draft order and be well on our way to another fun year.
Any questions, fire away.
